MF DOOM x Sesame Street

Sesame Street is 40 years old, and it reminded me of an MF DOOM song. Well it actually reminded me of good times as a kiddie in front of my television, learning my ABCs and 123s. As for DOOM; “Kookies” from 2004’s  MM..Food? album samples the music from Sesame Street’s end credits (“Funky Chimes“). Wait for the 1:55 mark in the video below.

Hmm, hope Mr. Dumile cleared that. And for the uninitiated, “Kookies” has nathan to do with “cookies.” This post was brought you by the letter M and the number 8. Peace to the Cookie Monster.

Shoulder strap, velcro closure, glow in the dark logo and it’s a limited edition from Technics and DMC. [Spotted at FRESHNESS via Turntable Lab]

I don’t see a New York City bag so I’ll just assume that they’re sold out, or something. Below, the video for the song where the above quote comes from, and more pics of the bag.
